Carmelo Anthony has proven to me time and time again that when push comes to shove, he can outshine the so-called “King” LeBron James. I’ve noticed even going back to their rookie seasons, Carmelo Anthony’s teams have more often than not been able to hold off LeBron’s. Melo made the playoffs his first season in the league in the much tougher Western Conference while LeBron was at home watching on television. Granted LeBron may have a much wider array of basketball skills, he is still very limited at the same time. (Check out this blog to further understand this concept. http://primeobjective.co/Blog/?p=200) They both have similar ball handling abilities in my opinion but the main attributes that set each of them apart is LeBron’s quickness and court-vision and Carmelo’s ice water jumpshot.
